Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become an acceptable alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement in high-risk and inoperable patients. Several technical and anatomical considerations can increase the complexity and risk of the procedure, and therefore are considered as contraindications to TAVR. Patients with

significant aortic disease such as aortic dissection are not usually considered for TAVR due to risk of aortic rupture or retrograde extension of the dissection. Herein is presented a report of the first successful TAVR in a patient with extensive type B dissection.
